The much-loved cook Mary Berry has a new BBC Two series to get the nation cooking, Mary Berry’s Simple Comforts.
The six-part series will see Berry show viewers easy to follow recipes so they can create the ultimate comfort foods from their homes.
Berry travels the UK and goes abroad, inspired by the people she meets and the food she tastes, giving viewers simple dishes to cook that will brighten their day.
Commissioned by Sidney Street, the series finished filming in January 2020 and a book of the same name will be published by BBC Books.
Catherine Catton, BBC Head of Commissioning for Popular Factual and entertainment, commented: “Now, more than ever, home cooking is central to daily life and Mary Berry’s take on comfort food is exactly what we all need.”
Karen Ross, Managing Director of Sidney Street, called Mary Berry “the Queen of home cooking”.
She added: “There is no one else we want to turn to when we are looking for something comforting to cook at the end of a very long day.
“This series is a celebration of all those wonderful just-sink-into dishes, all brought alive by Mary’s incredible skill, humour and her joy of cooking!”
Mary Berry’s Simple Comforts will air on BBC Two later this year.
